    Years ago in my early twenties I was working as a security guard in a high rise office building/hotel in South Miami, not far from the University of Miami. We had a guy jump from the roof and commit suicide. I was actually working in the garage area when he jumped. I made the mistake of going up on the second level of the parking garage to take a look at the body down on the street. Somehow I made the mistake of thinking that I was really high up and that I would barely be able to see the body. When I figured out my mistake it was too late. I was looking down from a distance of about less than two stories. I’ve never seen a body look like that up close. The only thing I remember was that the guy was wearing pants and no shirt and his eyes were wide open and it looked like he was looking directly at me, it scared me to no end. The mental pain and anguish that pushes a person to suicide is something that I will never understand.

      I also learned a lot after a family suicide. And then a 7-point Richter scale shock out of the blue caused an experience I hadn’t had before…it lasted just a few weeks. So now I understand something more about people who suffer. And I think if the mental issue is not physiological in some way, that one of the key triggers is Betrayal of some kind. Maybe our mind cannot envisage something like that ever happening and so part of the process is having the courage to face reality.

    LarryO was blistering on Rudy.

    Giuliani speaks, causes Trouble for Trump
    Rudy Giuliani made off-the-cuff remarks about North Korea that the Secretary of State had to rebuff. Giuliani also made claims about Melania Trump and Stormy Daniels that the First Lady’s spokesperson had to shoot down. Lawrence asks, how much longer can Giuliani continue to damage the Trump admin?

    Light of Russia investigation sends Trump affiliates scattering

    Rachel Maddow looks at what has become a pattern of panic by Donald Trump affiliates and associates when questions from or about the Trump Russia investigation send them hiding, denying, or shutting down operations.

    G7: Trump is asking for “Russia be allowed back in”. Is he there mostly to plead Putin’s case?
    Putin says the two talk ‘regularly’ by phone. Trump plans to “skip out on G-7 meetings about climate change, clean energy and ocean protection”. So now America aka the “Hardest working nation in the Richest country in the world’ (that doesn’t receive even the most basic benefits enjoyed by European nations) is to be represented by this traitorous conman. “Disrupting Europe’s social market economy model is the plutocrat party’s real target and any means will do. To protect their core clientele, they must make sure that the economic feudalism that still pervades the United States doesn’t just continue, but is preferably still expanding.” (Richter/Bott, Globalist)

      Am seeing that the global Con Architects are after changing ALL the rules that we live by – they aren’t just tinkering about the
      U.S. edges. Upending ALL the rules for maximum disorientation. Putin and his buddies Trump/KOCH must be stopped pronto.

He obviously is not going to be the star of this summit, he can’t stand it, so he wimps out on meeting the President of France. He stupidly thought he had Macron in his pocket…..sorry Donny…..everyone outside the U.S. is on to you, and will not bow to you. You big wimp.

    Thanks so much for this post, Nerdy darlin’. First person I thought of when I heard about Anthony Bourdain was his close friend, Chef Eric Ripert, who found him. Second person was President Obama!

      My son was a self-taught-gourmet-chef-of-a-sort, and once – about 10 years ago – when Anthony Bourdain was giving a lecture nearby when we lived in Florida, I asked if he wanted me to buy him tickets to attend. He said, “No. He’s not going to cook. What’s he going to do … talk about cooking? No. I’d rather just go have a beer with him!”

    The Plutocrat Party (globally) doesn’t want Europe to be seen as economically successful while also extending 21st century benefits
    to its citizens. The idea is to spread U.S. feudalism as much as possible and create E.U. failure. This goes with Putin’s undermining of
    democracy and democratic nations. IMO when we recognize the global plutocrat super-objectives we can and will act without fear.

    … What leaders say matters, and what presidents say matters, Biden said, discussing his reaction to the president’s remarks on the Charlottesville rally.

    “When you saw people literally coming out of fields with torches lighted, walking down the streets of a historic city in America … and the president making a moral equivalency? It is extremely dangerous,” Biden said. “And silence is complicity.” …

      I think Rachel Maddow explained it perfectly, with Mueller indicting Russians along with Americans in the same indictment filing. Trump at some point has to pardon a Russian or two. And what will our citizens say about their President pardoning a Russian that tried to interfere an American election?

    My experience has been that trust is so easily broken, yet requires lots of time and effort to repair. I wonder how long after the Orange Idiot’s reign before the US will recover its former position? I wonder if it ever will.

    For close to a year and a half, Trudeau and his counterparts have employed various strategies to try to head off conflict with the volatile American President, from flattery to stonewalling to hours of schmoozing on the golf course. But in recent weeks Trump has confounded their efforts, unleashing a tit-for-tat trade war with allies, blowing up the Iran nuclear deal over European objections, and walking away from a deal with Canada and Mexico to overhaul nafta, all while lavishing praise on the North Korean dictator with whom he hopes to reach an accord next week. Adding insult to injury, Trump even cited an obscure national-security provision to justify the tariffs, as if America’s closest friends had suddenly become its biggest enemies. As a result, the G-7 meeting that Trudeau will host on Friday and Saturday was shaping up to be the most contentious, and possibly the most consequential, since the summits began, in 1975.

        Hello, JO’B. I’ve been trying not to, but in truth it’s hard to see (from an outside view) all that he’s consistently dismantling without ANYTHING practical being down to slow him down. Especially when I think that PBO and his Admin had to work so hard for each step. Sigh.

        ps: I noticed (yesterday, I think) that you are planning to take my young Florida ‘boyfriend’ on a tour. nudge-nudge; wink-wink 😀 😀

          Second, he’s planning on my taking him on a tour – Ha!!!!!!!!!! I was just planning on taking him out to lunch when I get back to Florida! But I’ll tell him he has a “girlfriend” he doesn’t even know. He’ll probably just smile that dazzling smile 🙂 🙂 🙂

        True, but even with ‘their hair on’ [made me grin a little] some of what he’s messing with (eg. TPP, Climate Accord, NAFTA) can’t be fixed right away once he’s removed. Ah well, I’ve placed my high hopes in Mr. Mueller.

          Could not agree with you more, Jacqueline. I really, really liked him. Just broke my heart when I heard the news.

          For those of us who cherish the value of every person’s life, the endless extraordinary cruelty of some humans toward each other and other species, overwhelms our souls.

          Anthony must have been crushed by horrors in Syria, Crimea, Yemen, Palestine and so many other places he not only visited but became deeply attached to those living there.

          Unfortunately, he had no one to hold him and give him the opportunity to weep and find solace. What he didn’t realize is that if he had asked literally MILLIONS of us would have been at his side, immediately.
